Wright v. Columbia Sussex Corp.

January 25, 2008

ROCHELLE M. (CARTER) WRIGHT, PLAINTIFF,
v.
COLUMBIA SUSSEX CORPORATION, D/B/A KNOXVILLE MARRIOTT DEFENDANT.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Thomas W. Phillips United States District Judge

(Phillips)

ORDER

In this lawsuit, plaintiff Rochelle Carter Wright claims that she was terminated by Columbia Sussex because of her race (African-American), and/or in retaliation for engaging in activities protected by Title VII, in violation of 42 U.S.C. § 2000e, et seq., 42 U.S.C. § 1981, and Tenn. Code Ann. § 4-21-101, et seq. Currently pending is the motion for summary judgment of defendant Columbia Sussex [Doc. 89].

Upon careful review of the record, the court finds that there are multiple issues of material fact which remain to be determined including: (1) whether plaintiff was discriminated against by Columbia Sussex on the basis of her race; (2) whether Columbia Sussex retaliated against plaintiff for opposing its alleged discriminatory hiring practices; and (3) whether Columbia Sussex's stated nondiscriminatory reason for terminating plaintiff's employment was a pretext for discrimination and/or retaliation.

Accordingly, Columbia Sussex's motion for summary judgment [Doc. 89] is hereby DENIED. The parties will prepare the case for trial.
